    Default What is Metro UI ? Why Metro?

    Metro is the name for the design language, the design philosophy, behind Windows Phone 7. This is not only in reference to the look and feel of the interface itself, but also to the animations which bring the 2D interface designs to life and the sounds that accompany user interactions on the devices.



    Why Metro? Inspired by the way-finding graphics that you find in airports, railway and bus stations the world over, Metro is a homage to those high contrast, high colour visualisations that stand out in those visually noisy environments.

    Great read at Metro, Windows Phone 7 design language

    Thank you for the PDF. I am reading it. Its awesome.
    I also read about it on OzTechNews.com: I called it! – Microsoft announce SoC support for Windows 8

    Quote from link above:
    To top all that off, we’re hearing rumours that Windows Phone-like features are coming to Windows 8, such as a Metro-like second UI, an App Store and new Application deployment model are all making their way into the new operating system. These are going to make things fun.
